The Magic Of MARILYN

"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."

Marilyn Through Our Artists Eye's

Actress Marilyn Monroe continues to appeal to us having overcome a difficult childhood to become one of the world's biggest and most enduring sex symbols.

Her appeal for some is that she was sexy and beautiful; others are people who adore her sensitivity and the way she never stopped trying to make her life more fulfilling. Perhaps it is a mixture of everything that makes her so appealing, and the reasons continue to evolve as time passes by.

Monroe died of a drug overdose on August 5, 1962, at only 36 years old. 
Forever immortalised through film, photography and of course art.

"Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

Eve Arnold

One of the most important photojournalists of the twentieth century, Eve Arnold had a prolific career documenting people both ordinary and famous.

 

Probably Arnold's best-known work is her photography of film star Marilyn Monroe, published in book form in 1987 and revised and reissued in 2005. Six sessions took place over a 10-year period, the shortest two hours and the longest two months, when Arnold saw her daily during filming of The Misfits.

 

Pure Evil

 

ThIs image of Marilyn is taken from a publicity photo for the film Niagara, an American 1953 film noir thriller film directed by Henry Hathaway. Monroe was given first billing in Niagara, which elevated her to star status.
